When singer Bobby Darin wrote the lyrics to a hit song: “Somewhere beyond the sea, somewhere, waiting for me, my lover stands on golden sands and watches the ships that go sailing” it is doubtful that he had a waterfront condo in mind. But, as it turns out, these words well match the Beyond the Sea and Star Tower condo by developer Empire Communities.
Here’s a wonderful option for those looking for large suites and waterfront living without the congestion of the downtown core. Located at Lakeshore Boulevard West (at Legion Rd) in Etobicoke, the newly completed (2012) three glass towers (26, 37 and 44-storey) offer a total of 832 suites. These range in size from a very comfortable 781 sq. ft. to a magnificent 2536 sq. ft. and – this is not to be missed – your parking space is included in the price. Guest parking is also available. For your commute east or west, the Mimico Go Train Station is a 3 km drive.
Whether you are a birder, a boater or a bicyclist you will love living so close to the Humber Bay Park West. This parkland is one of two landsplits that reach into Lake Ontario at Mimico Creek. Starting in 1984, roughly 300 acres of parkland have been restored resulting in mature trees, wildflower meadows, fish habitat and trails. There are picnic tables, a playground, beach-front and even an old lighthouse (c.1895). Two private yacht clubs make their homes here. Choose your suite and enjoy the view from your balcony.
Residents of Beyond the Sea are well looked after by 24-hour concierge service, a games room, fitness centre, party room, roof deck sauna and swimming pool. There is also a hobby room, library, demonstration kitchen, yoga studio and children’s play area. It a family-friendly condo in a family-friendly location.

Each suite has 40 oz. quality broadloom carpeting throughout the bedrooms. Engineered hardwood covers the hallways and principle living areas.

All suites are pre-wired for telephone, cable and Internet.
